Treklens, here is my first shot from the plane by Air Condor. In Peru from Lima to Cusco, flight delay 5 hours due to the dense clouds, frustrated me. And atlast when boarded, got the window seat.

WOW, realized the density of the clouds when plane was in the sky, it was so fantastic there I had the feeling of ''walking on clouds''. Amazing cotton clouds, deep blue sky...and nothing. Clicked thru the window (which was little dusty).

Hope you like it and feel the same. :) Vandana

A picture is worth a thousand words, but the right words can change a picture forever. ;)

Lovely saturation, Vandana, I would have loved to see this in portrait mode with more of that gorgeous blue sky, too - but your composition here gives a real sense of your title. Nice work!


Hi Vandana,
Wow excellent view you give me here I feel like I'm in the cockpit agian! Gives me good memories this picture which is excellent regarding colour, the slight blur makes it a bit dreamy. Superb posting in a nice frame. Job well done my dear Vandana!

Hello Vandana,
This is a very nice POV with great softness of the clouds and this very nice dark blue sky.
I feel like in a dream.

One could just open the door, step out and walk on clouds: that's what they feel like, solid. On some days, you get the same atop of a mountain, with clouds just beneath your feet.

Hi Vandana... This is a very nice photo. I like the contrasts and tones are excellent. George

great shot...amazing... tfs

WOW, dancing on clouds! What a special scene here:-) TFS

Hi Vandana,

Beautiful look of these cotton clouds. I would adore to walk over them. Beautiful visual and composition.


Hi Vandana

It looks like the view from Mount Everest, & considering your plane was probably cruising at 28,000 feet, the deep blue is understandable. (Many times I have read other critiques complaining the sky is unnaturally blue, but at this altitude, it really is as portrayed here). Reasonable sharpness for being shot through a perplex window too. Tfs!

Sun always shines above the clouds.
From below of it, you can make the sun shining if you wanted yourself.!
Nice airborn shot.

Looks like Heaven! Nice shot Vandana! It's so hard to shoot through the plastic windows of airplanes! You did a great job here!

On est prêt à nager dans cette mer de nuages !
Bonne journée.

Splendide composition de nuages, belle perspective et belle netteté


Lovely rich blue Vandana. My three attempts of doing this have been abysmal failures. Fluffy clouds are appealing and well presented. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Cobwebs V’

Hello Vandana.
Very impressive picture.
Looks great and magic to me.
-50C up there :) but looks great!
Best Regards

will be back with ;)

high en dry in the sky, you jump out a plane?
hehe beautifull nature! :)

People who know me, knows that one of my most important things in a picture is the mood. This is one such a shot.I drift away in the picture with my mind, It takes me. Maybe a lttle sentimental, but my thoughts are going to my mother when I see this picture. Is she there, somewhere? She died 8 months ago.
Well done and TFS.

Best regards,

Hi Vandana. Good POV above the clouds like this. I love the fluffy nature you have captured well. Quality is excellent through what can be bit dirty and cratched windows at times. The deep blue is very impressive in this image. TFS. Murray.

What a view ! Great idea... You bring is literally "above the clouds" !
